The racket ppa is now on version 5.3.0. Also I discovered how to add a .desktop file so a menu entry for 'drracket' will show up in applications->programming. I'm not quite sure what will happen on Unity, does anyone know? The ppa is being updated as I type this with the version that contains the .desktop file.

Right now I'm using collects/icons/plt.xpm. Is there a better icon to use?

I see that libjpeg62 is not a dependency of the package. Does it need to be?
